    OMG! Best coin find ever! My record oldest US dug coin! And it's silver!

    Video link!


    Today, I only had a few hours before dark to detect so I went back to the spot that I found trime yesterday! I had been gold panning so I was completely soaked up to the waist and partially up my back from the creek water. I detected about 30 minutes and they got completely dark but I was all the way at the back of the field so I decided to stay for a few more minutes and I'm sure glad I did! I got a repeatable coin signal and obviously I could not see my screen so I had no idea what I was about to dig. I just assumed it was another dern can. Just like yesterday with the trime, I saw a black disc with my pinpointer light! I picked up the black disc of metal and in the pinpointer light discovered that it was some sort of capped bust coin! I could tell it that time that was in pristine condition but I did not know at that time they had been scraped on both sides. Unfortunately I scraped the back side of the the dime with my lesche hand shovel. I then made a beeline to my car with my ace 250 pro pointer, lesche digger and decided to clean it off on the site with my friends well water and I made a video. The light from the video revealed that it was an 1829 liberty capped bust dime. It has scratches on both sides like I said but it is in extra fine or better condition underneath the scratches. In 1829 they had 3 different types. They had small, medium, and large. Mine is the large version. I am so happy to have dug my oldest US coin and best dime ever! Not to mention that I dug my best coin to date yesterday, as well, being a 1858 trime! I also found a few junky relics. I am so happy!

    It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.

    YEEEEYUH!! Sweet diggins!
    If your first thought is "What is it worth", sell your detector and get a JOB.
    Stop "American Digger" and "Diggers" while you can still HUNT.

    .....and I still am! The three center yesterday boosted me into the clouds initially so i have been riding that out all day! Now I am just pinching myself waiting for the dream to end! Yall have to keep in mind I hunt with an ace250! I am not accustomed to finding this caliber of coins! The last thing i will say is this: The best reason i can give to explain why I love this hobby so is that i get to experience once in a lifetime events on a daily basis. I love it!
